The Details About The Detroit Medical Marijuana Dispensary Ordinance

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

detroit marijuanaIt may not start until March 1, 2016, but these are the facts you should know about the new medical marijuana dispensary ordinance passed by Detroit’s City Council last week.

Medical marijuana dispensaries, called Caregiver Centers (CC) in the Ordinance, must apply with the city for licensing. Applications will be taken from existing and prospective CCs begins on March 1, 2016. Existing businesses have a 30 day window in which to apply. They have to show “significant progress” within 60 days and must have completed the process within 60 days after receiving their building permit. Several other benchmarks apply, and those applicants who are late with payments may find themselves rejected, according to the language of the ordinance.

The fee structure is yet to be determined. The job is the responsibility of the Director of the BSEED, and the amount of licensing revenue generated will be determined by the amount of “the cost of issuance and the administration of the licensing regulations, and shall be approved by resolution of the City Council.”

CCs can be established in the B2, B4, M1, M2, M3 and M4 zoning districts. Prohibited areas include Traditional Main Street Overlay or Gateway Radial Thoroughfare Areas. CCs must provide one offstreet parking spot for every 200 square feet of the Center. They cannot be less than 1,000 feet from another CC, from a park recognized by the Recreation Department, from a religious institution which has received a tax exemption from the city, or from a businesses identified as a controlled use (topless clubs and liquor stores).

Radical Rant: Legalization Will Change Medical Marijuana Programs

Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 22nd 2015 by THCFinder

Dear Medical Marijuana States

I’m writing today to inform you that if you have a medical marijuana program and are thinking about legalizing marijuana use by all adults, that legalization will affect your medical marijuana program.

But that’s not a reason to oppose marijuana legalization.

Here on the West Coast, we’ve had medical marijuana since the late 1990's. As the first medical marijuana states, we also enjoyed the greatest leeway in terms of protection from enforcement of the controlled substance laws.

We tried to keep medical marijuana untouched by legalization. The campaign for Washington’s Initiative 502 repeatedly claimed their language did not change medical marijuana laws. Oregon’s Measure 91 said specifically, three times, that their language was not to affect medical marijuana. Neither initiative contained any language modifying medical marijuana in any way.

Those were not lies or false promises.

The Difference Between A Marijuana ‘Edible’ And A Cannabis ‘Consumable’

Marijuana edibles are very popular. I once seen a statistic that stated 40-50% of all legal marijuana-related product sales in America are of edibles. I wouldn’t be surprised if that number grew in upcoming years. More and more people are either consuming marijuana for the first time now that recreational is legal in some states, or they are coming back after a long layoff. I have been trying to get my grandma to consume some cannabis since she’s retired, recreational marijuana is legal in Oregon, and would really benefit from it. She has told me that she would never smoke it again (she did back in the day, she’s a baby boomer), but that she would be interested in a cookie or candy.

Consuming marijuana in smokeless form is a lot more desirable to newbies and returning consumers. Edibles are popular with smokers and vape pen lovers too. I smoke flower, hit dabs, and carry a vape pen on the regular, but you will rarely if ever see me pass up on a cookie, candy, or some other smokeless form of marijuana consumption. I like all things cannabis related. If there was a cannabis deodorant, I’d be the first in line to try it!

I had a very interesting conversation with a cannabis entrepreneur the other day. He asked that I keep his company, product, and his name secret, which I would have done anyways since I’m not in the business of publicizing hardworking people’s proprietary information. Keep it in the vault! All I will say is it was a drink, and I was impressed by it and I’ll leave it at that. Anyhow, he pointed out that he didn’t like the term ‘edible’ and that it should really be a ‘consumable.’ It’s much more encompassing.
